Getting expert support for investigating, containing, and remediating security breaches.
The vast majority of organizations today are unprepared to respond effectively to a serious security incident. Most often, this is due to chronic resource issues and inadequate planning.
- In 2019, it took organizations an average of 206 days to identify a data breach and another 73 days to contain it, a nearly 5% increase over the year before.
- The total average cost of a data breach for the largest organizations was $5.11 million (about $204 per employee). For smaller organizations, the average was $2.65 million (about $3,533 per employee).
- Less than a quarter of organizations have a cybersecurity incident response plan (CSIRP) that is applied consistently across the entire enterprise. Another 49% say they either don’t have a CSIRP at all or that their CSIRP is informal or ad hoc.
- Of those organizations that do have CSIRPs, more than half fail to test and maintain them on a regular basis due to ongoing team staffing issues.
There is no quick fix to resolve these challenges. The acute global shortage of experienced cybersecurity talent shows no signs of abating. Meanwhile, threat actors continue to innovate, developing tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) designed explicitly to evade legacy defenses.
Here’s how to get expert help from AI technology and strategic support services that empower organizations to efficiently investigate, contain, and remediate security breaches.
